Water water everywhere.
Interesting early TV doc about the building of the San Fransisco model, which was essentially a big scale relief map of the San Francisco bay. This map purportedly assisted various people on the water movements in the bay area, and what could be done to improve it. Interestingly enough, at the end, It was sort of hinted that the usage of this would be limited, that the Army would end the usage of this someday. Contrary to this (and to my amazement), this is still being used (and added upon!) today! What made this program interesting was the early tv doc aesthetic, the harsh light glow, unsure tv subjects, etc. This was quite the fun watch actually. Reccomended!
